Itinerary 3 - Luxury Escape

Day 1 - A Introduction To Nelson City:
  • Arrive in Nelson City and check in to Shelbourne Villa's luxurious and artistically decorated Loft
  • Explore the City on foot - depending on the time of day you may want to refresh yourself with coffee and a light snack at one of the inner City cafes that are within 5 or 6 minutes walk of your accommodation. Our favourite and the closest, is the Morrison Street Cafe
  • Continue your exploration of Inner City Nelson and it's many galleries.  We can provide you with an excellent map that will help you to locate the type of works that interest you.  
  • Visit Nelson's Queens Garden's where you will find and enjoy the Suter Art Gallery  There is also an excellent conservatory style cafe located in the Suter Art Gallery building. 
  • Return to Shelbourne Villa and freshen up before dining at one of Nelson's waterfront restaurants
Day 2 - Indulge Yourself:
  • For her - if you are the active type, then all of the activities outlined in the previous 2 itineraries are available for your enjoyment, or perhaps to challenge you.
  • Alternatively, if you are looking for some well deserved or long awaited "me time", then why not allow your self a slow start followed by a long luxurious Day Spa pamper session which can be followed up a gallery tour?
  • For him - Perhaps a day in the great outdoors with a local Fishing Guide?
  • Together - a day exploring the Wineries and Galleries which surround Nelson.
  • You will have a choice between driving your-self at a leisurely pace; we can provide maps and information to help you plan the day, or take an organised Art and Vineyard Tour.
  • This link will be useful to help you plan the day, if taking the self drive option.  You will find maps and all of the information needed to select which Wineries and Artists to visit.
  • If you prefer to join an organised tour, you have the option of doing so with an escorted group of other travellers, or, via a more personalised tour accompanied by a knowledgeable driver and guide.
  • To finish the day we suggest dining at Nelson's award winning Hopgood's Restaurant.  You won't need to get back into a vehicle - Hopgood's is only a short 5 minute walk from Shelbourne Villa.  The menu show-cases fresh organic local produce.  The wine list also has a local emphasis.  You will also have the opportunity to sample beers from a number of the Region's award winning boutique breweries.
Day 3 - Some "Off-Beat Art" to start & Nelson From The Air:
  • Start the day with a visit to WOW, Nelson's World of Wearable Art and Classic Cars Museum, en-route to Nelson Airport, or alternatively, visit the NZ Classic Motorcycle Museum.
  • Continue on to Nelson Airport, where you can take a scenic flight by Fixed Wing Aircraft or by Helicopter to explore the Nelson Tasman and Golden Bay area by air.  There are a broad range of options available that not only allow you to explore the region's coastline, plains and mountains, but also to touch down in some remote and beautiful spots where you can enjoy the scenery "up close", or perhaps a picnic lunch in the great out-doors.  Our suggested operators can also arrange a combination day for you in conjunction with other activity providers.
  • Return to Shelbourne Villa and freshen up before dining at one of Nelson's waterfront restaurants
